Lutron

By 2015, federal mandates dictate that government facilities must reduce their energy usage by 30 percent. As a US based company, Lutron Electronics is proud to partner with the US Government to provide energy-saving solutions compliant with the "Buy American Act" that will help the government achieve their aggressive energy reduction goals. Lutron light controls can save up to 60 percent of lighting electricity usage, which translates to 23 percent overall building energy reduction. Founded in 1961, Lutron designs and manufacturers energy-saving light controls, automated window treatments, occupancy sensors and more. Its innovative, intuitive products can be used to control everything from a single light, to every light, shade, temperature, and even stand-by power in a home or commercial building. Lutron products make any space more versatile, while enhancing comfort and productivity.

Lutron estimates that the installed base of its products saves the nation nearly 10 billion kWh of electricity, or approximately $1 billion in utility costs per year. Lutron manufactures more than 16,000 energy-saving products, sold in more than 100 countries around the world.
